Info

This is garage sale priced because it has been discontinued.

No Warranty, No Returns on Garage Sale Items  

 

Replace your timing chain with a Speedway Tru-Gear gear drive. Unlike timing chains, a gear drive doesn't stretch, so your cam timing stays more accurate. We builds these drives with dual idler gears, making them more stable than single idler gear drives. A Tru Gear gear drive is as easy to install as a timing chain and will fit under your stock timing chain cover.

  • Easy to install
  • Compatible with all standard camshafts
  • SAE 660 silicon bronze rear thrust ring included
  • Rugged Cr40 alloy steel gears assure prolonged trouble-free operation
  • Axial needle and cage forward thrust bearings reduce friction
  • Designed for precise multiple cam timing adjustments
  • Includes 0-2-4-6-8° cam degree bushings
  • Absolutely no adverse wear to camshaft or valvetrain components 
  • Dyno tests prove no horsepower loss compared to a chain

For use on Chevrolet Big Block engines 396-454 c.i.

No machine work is required to use the brass thrust washer. The thrust washer seats onto the upper gear where there is a machined area for it to fit.
